Before the year is out, LG will join the swelling ranks of Android smartphone manufacturers. Their first Android phone will be a low-budget number called the Eve. It'll be out sometime in Q4 and, according to Phandroid it will be available in Canada on Rogers Wireless, in addition to several European carriers. The folks at Android and Me have managed to dredge up some new images and bizarre commercials for the Eve.
Both commercials heavily emphasize the Eve's social networking capabilies, which seem to revolve around integrating a contact's phone number, facebook status, twitter updates, and other social media information together in a single phonebook entry. The UI looks fine, but there doesn't appear to be anything that distinguishes it from the herd. This is certainly no MotoBlur or Sense.

We don't yet know what sort of hardware the Eve will pack. It's a QWERTY-slider and has a 3” touchscreen. According to the leaked Roger's wireless price sheet, it will sell for just $49.99. For that price, we're probably looking at a 2-3 MP camera and very little internal memory. Still, for that low a price the specs don't need to be anything special.
